I'm sorry for your lost. My prayers are with you. Remembering many happy times visiting with the Engelmeier family; especially when we were kids at Thanksgiving and days at the lake and farm. Wonderful days gone by. In the later years it was always fun to visit Marge several times a year at her beautiful lake home.

So many memories of times spent together and having fresh apple pie when arrived from Montana to visit she will be truly missed

Thoughts and prayers your family—we always looked forward to visiting Aunt Margie on our trips to Minnesota and couldn’t wait to taste her pies. She was special to us. —
